    I am considering using the your Pig Sock product for a leaky/wet basement issue. If I purchase the “Sock” for this issue, can I reuse the socks, or do I have to throw them away every time I use them?

    FYI – I get approx. 6-8 gallons of water max. during a heavy rain.

      Hi Lonnie,

      Thank you for your comment!

      Our Mildew-Resistant Absorbent Sock would be ideal for this application. Each four foot sock absorbs one gallon of water. After they’ve done their job, they can be hung out to dry and stored for reuse. Please note that it can take several days for the socks to completely dry and that they should only be air-dried.

      Hope this information helps! If you have any other questions, please leave another comment.
